It all began when I was about 3 years old, my parents bought me a $15 toy drum set from Wal-Mart. It didn't take me long to destroy it, by the end of the first night, I pretty much ripped apart the drum skins. That didn't stop me from wanting to play, I kept going back to it and kept beating it up. My parents took notice that I still had an interest despite the drum set being to the point where it was unplayable.
In November of 2006, my parents bought me a junior Ludwig 5 piece set and cymbals. This was supposed to be a Christmas present, however, my parents caved in (like they usually always do) and gave it to me early. I played around with it and my parents noticed that I wasn't just pounding on it, but was carrying somewhat of a beat. In January of 2007 I attended my first formal lesson at the California Drum Shop. My teacher was Todd Scheid. I really liked Todd alot, he made learning alot of fun. I continued lessons with Todd for close to 3 years. Around July of 2009, my parents asked if I wanted to attend a one week summer camp at the Paul Green School of Rock Music. This is a performanced based school. I attended the camp and enjoyed playing music live with other musicians.
I continued lessons at the California Drum Shop for the next couple of months and continued to learn and grow as a musician. At this point in time, my parents asked me if I would like to continue to perform and attend The School of Rock on a full time basis. I told them that this was something that I would like to do. It was very difficult for me to leave Todd, he was an awesome teacher and a very good mentor! In October of 2009, my parents enrolled me at the Ft Washington School of Rock Music. My first season's show theme was "Southern Rock" I really enjoyed making new friends and played my first show in January of 2010. I am looking forward to continue learning and growing as a musician and entertainer.
I am in 3 shows now my last one was The Sex Pistols vs The Clash and it was great. My show now is AC/DC and it is going to be the best out of all of them. The boot camp is going good, I have 8 songs so far and I am not joking, I'm serious, it is going to be fun.
